Here, Rosanna discusses one of her favorite gown trends right now.

The peplum; It's a dress with a short skirt-like overlay or ruffle sewn at the waistline that became a popular look on the bridal runway this year. It's an ultra-feminine and fashion-forward trend that creates a curvaceous silhouette on the bride. Peplum gowns come in a number of different fabrics and styles. Here, a few of our favorites.

But the peplum doesn't have to stop with the bride. They make for wonderfully bold and modern bridesmaid and mother of the bride dresses, too.
